Three studio apartments in Dublin that are surprisingly nice

Three studio apartments in Dublin that are surprisingly nice

Dreamy rental properties in Dublin are hard to come by these days, as one Image writer sadly came to learn. Even if you can afford the price tag, many flats and studios are small, dark and cave-like. But we’ve found a few exceptions. Granted they’re on the higher end of the cost spectrum, these three studios are surprisingly homely.

Casimir Avenue, Harold’s Cross, Dublin 6 – €1,200 Per month

This recently refurbished studio apartment in Harold’s Cross is on the market for €1,200 per month. Located on the first floor of a red-brick period property, it has been kitted out with additional insulation, double glazed windows and Farho Intelligent Heating. According to letting agent O’Connor Shannon, the accommodation also includes a brand new kitchen (including appliances), as well as a new ensuite shower room. On-street parking may be available, provided the new tenant obtains a permit from Dublin City Council subject to their usual rules. Internet is also available, as is cable TV and access to a spacious garden/patio area.

Lennox Street, Portobello, Dublin 8 – €1,250 per month

Located within a three-minute walk of the nearest Luas stop, this studio apartment in Portobello is warm and sophisticated. It has been newly renovated by the current owners and offers car parking to the front and a large communal garden to the back. The kitchen comes with a dishwasher, oven and kettle; while a stylish wooden breakfast bar provides additional space for food-prep. The studio is so warmly lit and tastefully decorated that it’s almost like B&B accommodation. What’s more, the Portobello area has all the amenities anyone might need.

Grove Park, Rathmines, Dublin 6 – €1,200 per month

As with the two properties mentioned above, this studio in Rathmines has been recently renovated to the highest standard. Located within walking distance of Rathmines Village, Portobello and the City Centre, it’s one of 10 studio apartments in the building. The interiors are bright and airy, with brand new kitchen appliances and contemporary furniture. Other facilities include a washing machine, dryer, microwave, cable TV, internet access and parking. If you want to leave the car at home, the area is serviced by a wide range of Dublin Bus routes and Charlemont Luas station.
